Mike Florio will become the highest earning player in history for 1 week

When Mahomes signed his 10-year extension worth up to $503M in 2020, it was one of the richest sports contracts in history

With recent deals for Eagles QB Jalen Hurts and Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, Mahomes' contract value is well behind the top in the league.

He recently suggested that the team may wait for contract extensions for Joe Burrows and Justin Herbert before exploring any adjustments.

We are only one year into a 10 year contract so there is a long way to go but I think what Patrick cares about the most is winning

And he's definitely capable of a lot. (General Manager) Brett Veitch had enough flexibility to be able to add quality players every year

Knowing that Mahomes had his contract structured for the first time to give the team extreme flexibility

It's reasonable to expect that any adjustments to his contract would maintain the same level of flexibility. Even with the words, "highest paid player in league history" floating around
